Remarks & Notes 
Cogscape - The Presidential Range. Mt. Washington is the tallest in a series of connected peaks that are called The Presidentials, because they are named for past US Presidents. In this shot, MWRC #9 "Waumbek" traverses the Homestretch Flats with Mts Jefferson, Adams and Madison as a backdrop. Note the pair of hikers just in front of the train on the far side of the tracks. Only a hundred yards or so beyond them is a nearly 3000 ft. deep canyon formed by the peaks of The Presidentials. This canyon is known as The Great Gulf.
